it's your wedding, you should damn well be allowed to do whatever you wanted

I must disagree.

Severely.

As in, like, BRIDEZILLAS MAKE HULK SMASH is the kind of disagreement we're talking about here.

See Bad Wedding Ideas, on the other website worth reading. This explains it better than I could. Suffice it to say that I endorse every word. posted by eritain at 8:33 PM on July 12 [+] [!]


i'm not advocating bridzilla-ism by making the statement about pineapple being well within the rights to ask for that dance at her own damn wedding because it's…her own damned wedding and her friend's reaction to two and a half minutes of pineapple's wedding was completely over the fucking top. i would never do that to a close friend. it's her wedding, her freaking day and it's not as though she asked for something unreasonable nor was she being a bridezilla as far as one can tell. she wanted a dance for fuckssake! how is that being unreasonable??

that said, i still stand by ppl being able to do whatever the fuck they want. and other ppl not participating if they think it is unreasonable.

(and p.s.: i myself have no desire to have a wedding, partially to avoid all of these idiocies.)

I think that it is important for everyone to express herself/himself in whatever manner they choose. Notice that I put "herself" first because I think that women are often the last to feel able to do that. And Metafilter should be a safe place for women. Or "wymyn" if you prefer because you are very feminist or Welsh.

She should be allowed to be a bridezilla or anything else within reason at her wedding and no one should tell her different. She shouldn't be allowed to be, say, an archeopteryx, because things like that are impossible, but otherwise it is just for her and that's good.

She should be able to dance whatever she likes, including tribal dances (both African and Native American and even Irish if you like to think of them as tribal) and that is good.

Or maybe she is alone and that is sad because she sounds so well-adjusted. Well she can remedy that because this site is full of randy single men who are anxious to email with some girl who does not have a S/O. (that means "significant other" and can mean either a man or a woman so it is very progressive just like me. I learned that reading my local alternative weekly while waiting for a sub sandwich.)

So the leading comment above is hard to read. If the woman is a bridezilla, that is good. If she is sad because she is not a bride, that is good too. I think.

And then I'm over at Karlie's wedding and I'm thinking about how all my old fave shows are maxi suckfests these days, when Joe's mom, who is practically bonded with Captain Morgan at the molecular level, hops on on the table for this slow motion dance that a triple-jointed contortionist couldn't negotiate with six weeks' practice and a pulley system, which totally blitzes the whole vibe.

Bah! I know this is supposed to be the funny part of the thread, but reading through pineapples' responses made me feel ranty, too.

I agree with pineapple that her friend's reaction was unreasonable, and that the dance was not an insult to single people (although I wonder if I, in a Common Law marriage, would be allowed to dance?). However, I am confused that she has concluded that for *some* people (presumably not her) all that matters is personal experience and that her personal example, being obviously related to the question, means the single/couple thing cannot be resolved.

Despite the attempts to claim that there is a clear relationship between a wedding and a walk or a dinner because there were single people and couples involved in both, these were not socially equivalent situations. If anonymous had posted that a group of single friends and relatives she was socializing with excluded her from the conversation and left her alone with no one to talk to on a walk or on a dinner, people would not be so quick to say that it was anonymous's problem and not the problem with the people involved. Being upset with being invited to socialize and then abandoned to one's self is quite reasonable and anyone who does the abandoning is breaking social convention and good behaviour regardless of their couple status.

I went to one wedding where they did that dance-of-the-married people thing, and one crazy couple simply refused to get off the dance floor at their appointed time. So in the end, it was just them (married only 15 years) and the 60 years married couple at the end. It was very strange. I guess people just get weird ideas in their heads at weddings.

I've seen the married couple dance, as well as a 'married people stand up, now people married under a year sit down' type thing for honouring the longest married couple--it's often an alternative way to give away the bouquet. I've always thought it was pretty touching, and never at all been concerned or annoyed that it was discriminatory against me as a single person.

I have occasionally wondered how it makes the recently divorced or widowed feel, though.

"i kinda had a feeling i might start something by calling out pineapple on her wedding reception choices (it's right up there with criticizing people's kids, i know) but i had no IDEA the response would have legs like this"

I'll clarify since you missed it in the coy, self-congratulatory haze of your "call out": I didn't actually make the choice. I merely floated the idea in the months before the wedding, and my friend lost her shit over it. I was perfectly able to recognize that one silly dance idea is not worth my friendship, even if I thought she reacted inappropriately and wasn't being a particular good friend to me over it. I took the higher road and dropped the idea instantly.

I will always believe my friend overreacted -- not because it's wrong for her to have been upset by the dance, but because immediately threatening to drop out of my wedding is emotional blackmail, and not the way grown-ups communicate in healthy, mature relationships.

And if you think this is "legs," you might want to give yourself a skosh more time "in metaland" before awarding yourself a trophy. This is child's play for both the green and the grey.

"Despite the attempts to claim that there is a clear relationship between a wedding and a walk or a dinner because there were single people and couples involved in both, these were not socially equivalent situations."

I never tried to draw the equivalent. In fact, as someone else noted in the thread, the OP's walk after dinner is not like a wedding, and that if there's one place where couples should get a pass on pair-bond behavior, it's a wedding reception.

My whole goal of the anecdote was to point out that I experienced a single friend deciding that a couples-only activity would somehow indicate that I thought her less of a person and didn't respect her, which she demonstrated by throwing a tantrum. To my read, that fufilled the request by the OP when she said, "What are your experiences, as a single and as a couple? Have you felt the same way, and how do you deal with it? Do you ever change your behavior according to circumstances/present company?"

That other people chose to get hung up on the wedding/bridal aspect of the anecdote (and God knows that topic comes with its own whole set of matching monogrammed baggage these days) is hardly a "bit in my teeth."

"Brides can do whatever they want" is a derail and was never part of my point, and I called it out as such in the thread. "That there exist singles with super-sensitive feelings means that all couples-only activities, even at what is arguably the one event above all others designed to celebrate marrying," is still on topic as far as I'm concerned.

My suggestion that all couples' dances at weddings should clearly be cancelled in favor of catering to the sensitive singles at weddings was sarcasm, for those of you that missed it -- to point out the sublime silliness of the granular distinction that the anniversary dance would have been made acceptable depending on what second of the song the newlyweds left the floor and what the particular emotional state and recent single/couple interactions of one particular poster had been just prior to the wedding in question. I thought it was pretty tongue-in-cheek. Sorry to have confused those of you looking for low-hanging fruit.

"However, I am confused that she has concluded that for *some* people (presumably not her) all that matters is personal experience and that her personal example, being obviously related to the question, means the single/couple thing cannot be resolved."

carmen, I am only partially sure I understand your question but will be happy to try and clarify.

I do not believe that the single/couple thing can't be resolved simply because of my own experience. I believe that it can't be resolved because it's too soft and subjective an issue, as evidenced by the differing opinions right there in the thread -- "OP needs to get over it," "aunt and co. were rude," "a marrieds-only dance is sweet," "a marrieds-only dance means that pineapple is an asshole," etc. To my mind, the pretty equal split of "couples are insensitive assholes" vs. "singles are insecure and overly sensitive" demonstrate that there's no easy right answer, at least not here in the venue of discussion.

My own choice in real life remains to defer to the overly-sensitive regardless of marital status, even at my own cost, but I don't deign to believe that it's the right choice for everyone.

Interesting. I see it more like: I was answering the question that the OP asked, with my own relevant experience; discussion on that experience ensued, not all of which was relevant to the original question.

I can certainly see where someone could choose to read it another way (although I still don't see where MyAnswerIsBetterThanYours-ism justifies your tacky insults upthread). I'm sure that if enough people agreed with you that my comments had no merit in the thread, then the comments would have been flagged and appropriately deleted.

Since this was a classic TherapyFilter AskMe to begin with, it's a bit specious to get all snotty over whether I spent your personal pre-approved amount of HTML answering it. Ditto for MeTa and responding to direct "callouts." The whole thread is people discussing their feelings, including the poster, so if that makes you twitchy, maybe you should stick to the non-touchy-feely questions in the future.

This isn't directed at you specifically, pineapple. The above line reminds me of a wedding tendency that especially sucks for singles. In order to save costs, some weddings don't allow singles to bring a guest. You can come as two if you're married, but otherwise, no built-in dance partner for you. That practice takes some of the comfort and fun out of attending the celebration, and can especially highlight the downside of being single.
posted by xo at 5:29 PM on July 13, 2007


Traditionally speaking, single people aren't invited to bring guests to any kind of celebration. Practically the whole point of going to other people's parties and weddings is to meet people, so that you can, in the future, come as one of the smug married couples instead. So the reality is more that 'Because they recognize that relationships are increasingly casual and less likely to be formalized, more and more people are allowing single guests to invite their own companion, even if that person is otherwise unknown to the bride and groom and would not otherwise get their own invitation.'

Dancing or not dancing at weddings is a danger-fraught activity for the unmarried, pineapple; weren't Cinderella's step-sisters forced to dance in red hot shoes at her wedding in the original Grimm version? Plus, in England it was a custom in some places for at least a hundred years or so in the 19th & 20th centuries that an unmarried older sister would have to dance barefoot in a pig's trough at a younger sister's wedding.

Well. I have been the single guy a lot of times. Normally once the "third wheel" problem kicks in, I order a drink, inspect the brushwork on the artwork, go to the bathroom to fix my hair or otherwise try to at least fix the optics of the situation until it blows over. In extreme cases, I can make up a story that I was just paged.....

Weddings and other couple oriented gatherings can be a different matter sometimes. All the love and romance of the those times can make me feel like I did when I was a baseball player and would strike out, except I am being struck out by the three billion female inhabitants of Earth, and playing baseball isn't hard-wired into my genetic code. That said, if I was going to have a meltdown I would do it privately and chances are people wouldn't know about it. So I am going to give the benefit of the doubt and bring up the possibility that that the third-wheel-who-melts-down-or-selfish was somehow denied the dignified exit (maybe because of some other obligation to you), felt cornered and came out like a wounded animal.

Oh yes, my standard response to the "why no gf" question is "I don't know.... too ugly I guess".
